HOMER software optimizes small scale renewable and hybrid power systems. 40,000+ users for remote power applications
HOMER Energy LLC provides software, services, and community tools to professionals, researchers, and enthusiasts in the energy industry who desire to analyze and optimize distributed power systems and systems that incorporate high penetrations of renewable energy sources. Based in Boulder, Colorado, HOMER Energy was incorporated in 2009 to commercialize the Hybrid Optimization Model for Electric Renewables (HOMER), which was developed by the National Renewable Energy Lab, a division of the U.S. Department of Energy.
In addition to the HOMER software, HOMER Energy offers additional services, such as web-based and in person training and assistance in the use of HOMER. We also customize the software for novel problems or types of equipment. In addition we provide a range of consulting services related to the policies, economics and technologies of renewable and distributed power.
Since its release, the HOMER software has been downloaded by nearly 60,000 people in 193 countries. This is a global community of pioneering practitioners in renewable and distributed power. In order to harness the collective wisdom of this group, HOMER Energy has also created an on-line community with discussion forums where users can engage with each other.
HOMER Energy LLC’s team includes the economist and engineer who originally created the HOMER software while at NREL, along with professional managers, analysts and other business professionals with experience in entrepreneurial ventures, power systems, and renewable energy. The team receives advice from a group of industry veterans. Our collective vision is to empower people around the world with tools, services, and information in order to accelerate the adoption of renewable and distributed energy sources.
